Property Description

Welcome to The Rockstel Unawatuna!

Nestled away in a quiet, scenic spot surrounded by nature, The Rockstel Unawatuna marks the beginning of the journey for The Rockstel brand of hostels. Here you find a typical Sri Lankan country house with a twist, which has been curated and molded into a party hostel with a unique character, through painstaking attention to detail.

As you enter, you see the paved front garden, facing the colorful social area on the front patio, lined with the trademark seating arrangement of The Rockstel of having converted beds into sofas, with large colorful, comfy cusions to lean on. As you walk inside, you will see our friendly frontdesk staff at the reception, and a host of informative posters, a mini library, a beverage kiosk, and lots of colorful detailing on the walls. Once you complete your check in formalities, you will be led to one of four thematically designed rooms. The hostel has 3 ac rooms , and 1 room with individual fans. Two of the rooms have ensuite washrooms, and the other two share the two additional washrooms. All but one washroom comes with hot water showers. You will also be provided with a key to your individual locker, for your valuables.

While the hostel is a 20 minute walk from the main beach, it is quite centrally located from all four beaches in Unawatuna that travellers frequent, and we feel that if we were located closer to any one beach, we will be further from the rest. Having said that, its still a bit of a walk, so we have made scooter and bicycle rentals available for you through third party providers. If you want to be driven somewhere, our staff would be more than happy to organise a tuk tuk for you. If you are adventurous enough, you can even rent a tuk tuk and ride it yourself.

At The Rockstel Unawatuna, we take pride in being considered the best party hostel in Unawatuna, and to this end we organise events at the hostel every night, such as drinking games, quiz nights, and a host of other activities. We can guarantee you that you will make some memories and friends that you wouldn't forget for a life time.

Eagerly Awaiting to Welcome you at our party hostel in the jungle

    This is a cozy little hostel in the middle of nowhere, yet conveniently located to get to all the main hotspots in the area. This place comes alive in the night, with drinking games, music, and party vibes. Definitely not one to miss during your travels in the south of Sri Lanka. Check it out

    I stayed a night here and there were not many other guests to interact with, maybe it was the time of year. The hostel isn’t near anything so you have to walk a lot or get a ride, which is cheap enough. The manager Marks was very helpful! The room was clean and the AC was cold.

    Really good staff and nice social area to chill out the front. Location is a bit out the way but don't let this put you off. TukTuks are cheap and the walk isn't to bad (20mims to the beach and 10 till first bars/restaurants)

    The place is a little away from the main road and the beach but don’t let that set you off there is a short cut that they will explain. The staff there are super chill and very kind. Happy to drink and have a great time with you and do some morning yoga with you. We had a great party one night and I can imagine to rest it’s not the easiest but a great start to the trip.

    Great friendly people. Good air conditioning. No lock on dorm room, but lockers are available. Showers were cool, but refreshing. Twenty minute walk to the beach or an easy 250 rupee tuk tuk ride. I would stay here again :)

    The Rockstel does not rock. Everything is old and tired. Maybe this would be OK for a hostel in the 90s but now there are so many great options. It was super quiet when we were there and the location is away from everything.
